The World Health Organization (WHO) has released a report that says that cell phone use may cause brain cancer. A recent study has shown that people who use cell phones daily for at least 30 minutes over the course of 10 years increase their risk of developing cancer of the brain by 40% due to the radiation being given off by the device.

Dr. Samadi suggests ways to reduce the effect the radiation plays on your body including using a hands-free headset, holding the phone a minimum of one inch away from your ear, only using the phone in areas of good reception, and texting rather than talking. He also warns that children are at a higher risk due to the fact that their skulls are thinner, allowing more radiation to reach the brain, and because cells in children multiply more rapidly increasing the damage caused by radiation.

My Husband Rick was diagnosed with prostate cancer right before Christmas 2010. He was diagnosed at the same age that his father was but his father lost his battle with cancer at age 56. I was not ready to be a widow nor my children fatherless so I needed to find the best doctor on the face of this earth.

Several weeks ago I found myself not waking from a nightmare but waking into one. This was after being diagnosed with cancer. My life was spiraling out of control and reaching the epitome of despair. In a true sense of the word, I was experiencing an existential crisis. At moments I even questioned whether my life was worth going forward.
